St. Peter's umbrella by Kálmán Mikszáth( Book )

228 editions published between 1891 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novel of 1895 by the popular Hungarian writer Kálmán Mikszáth, set in the peasant villages of the Slovak highlands. From Lóránt Czigány's A History of Hungarian Literature: "Of his early novels, St. Peter's Umbrella (1895) was the most popular and perhaps the best. (Theodore Roosevelt was said to have admired the novel, and visited Mikszáth during his European trip in 1910 solely to express his admiration.) The novel illustrated well the working of Mikszáth's craft. The umbrella of the title may have been the subject of an anecdote in Upper Hungary, in which it was claimed to have a supernatural origin; St. Peter himself left it behind to protect an abandoned little girl. Thus the local peasants held the object in great veneration. The main line of the story--concerning the treasure-hunt of Gyuri Wibra, whose eccentric father put his fortune in an open bank-draft and hid it in the handle of an umbrella--is welded to the anecdote concerning the 'celestial umbrella.' The complications arising out of the search for the umbrella provide Mikszáth with an opportunity to work on two different levels--devising an exciting hunt for the inheritance, and at the same time observing the significance, in terms of mass-psychology, of a seemingly wortheless object."

Dieser burleske Roman spielt im Ungarn des 15. Jahrhunderts zur Zeit der Türkenkriege. König Michael Szilági empfängt eine Gruppe von Frauen aus dem Dorf Szelistye, die eine ungewöhnliche Bitte an ihn haben: Da der König ihnen ihre Männer genommen habe, die im Kampf gegen die Türken gefallen sind, soll er ihnen gefälligst neue geben. Amüsiert verspricht er es ihnen. Bald darauf wird er von seinem Neffen Matthias gefangen genommen und abgesetzt. Doch der junge König will das Versprechen seines Onkels einlösen. Aber woher die Männer für die nicht gerade hübschen und schon etwas älteren Frauen hernehmen? Als es darum geht, die Frauen in Empfang zu nehmen, beschließt der König, die Welt für einen Tag auf den Kopf zu stellen; der Hofnarr wird König, der König wird Diener. Eine turbulente und höchst vergnüglich zu lesende Kette von Ereignissen setzt ein
